Step by step guide to nailing winged eyeliner every time

Whether you are struggling to do winged eyeliner on hooded eyes, or you are looking for simple winged eyeliner tips, we’ve got you covered.

  1. Curl your lashes
  2. Trace along your upper lash line
  3. Draw a dot where you want your flick to end
  4. Fill in your flick
  5. Clean up using Eyeko off in a blink biphasic eye makeup remover
  6. Add plenty of Eyeko black magic mascara

1. Curl your lashes

Use the Eyeko eyelash curlers to extend your lashes and frame your eyes. Hold the curler at the base of your upper lash line for around 5 seconds on each eye.

2. trace along your upper lash line

Using the Eyeko Black Magic Liquid Liner, start at the inner corner of your top lid and trace along the lash line. Try to keep as close to the root of your lashes as possible and lift the liner up when you reach the outer corner.

3. Draw a dot where you want your flick to end

Looking in the mirror, identify where you want your flick to end. An easy way to decide this is by using a straight edge such as the closed eyeliner pen or a cotton bud. Line it up with the outer corner of your eye and the bottom tail of your eyebrow to create a diagonal line. Pop a little dot somewhere on that line for the perfect wing.

4. Fill in your flick

Trace a line from the outer corner of your eye to meet the dot you drew previously. Use this guide to fill in your flick and make it as statement or subtle as you like.

5. Clean up

If your lines aren’t as clean as you anticipated, don’t worry. A wobble can be easily cleaned up using the Eyeko off in a blink biphasic eye makeup remover and a cotton bud.

6. Add plenty of Eyeko black magic mascara

Add instant volume to your lashes to finish off the look with the help of Eyeko Black Magic Mascara. The curvaceous brush mimics the lash line shape for 90-degree curl, and the keratin and shea butter-enhanced formula keeps lashes feeling conditioned, supple and defined.
